There are many qualities in golf that make the game special. It’s the only game that can never be perfected. We go our entire lives working on our swing, short game and putting and there’s always room for improvement
But the most defining characteristic of the game is the ever changing course.
Football plays the same because the field never changes; it’s always 100 yards in length. Baseball fields have some different shapes and lengths but overall are very similar. Golf is the only sport where the course can dramatically affect how the game is played and the level of difficulty.

A couple of weeks ago we attended the official grand opening of 1757 Golf Club in Ashburn Virginia. The course and property has gone through multiple transformations during a long and troubled gestation period but the overall outcome seems worth the wait.
The club features first-class facilities, a tour caliber practice area and a course with plenty of challenge and variety to entertain all skill levels.
If you haven't made your way out of town or just don't want to fight the traffic like us…then do yourself a favor and get out to 1757 Golf Club pronto!
During our trip to Wisp Resort in western Maryland last month we were invited to play a preview round of the font nine at Lodestone Golf Club. The private Hale Irwin design is scheduled to open next year and in our mind will vault itself as one of the best courses anywhere in the state.
The nine holes we played were truly amazing. Sitting atop Marsh Mountain the course is the highest elevated course in the state offering dramatic views, elevation changes and is one of the most beautifully designed courses we've had the pleasure to play anywhere.
